Whatever the default was on the previous upgrade. It had some common sites and below several icons for sites that I visit frequently.
Mac Support Specialist: Ashik, Mac Technician replied 7 months ago

Sounds like it was set to Topsites or Favorites. In Safari, click on Safari menu and select Preferences (at top left). Click on General tab.

Click the dropdown option next to "New Windows open with" and "New tabs open with" to "Top Sites" or "Favorites" (try both, so you can see what was set before)

Close that window and restart Safari.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so I will continue to help you until we fix the problem

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
